Daily Reflection



Daily Reflection:
Tuesday, June 30

My Sisters and Brothers, we all have family and friends who are going through divorce.
 
I am including a prayer that we can pray for them.
 
Please share this prayer with families and friends, all who may need and appreciate these words.
 
Thank you!
 
--Fr. Mike
 
 
A Prayer for Marriages Going through Divorce
 
God of infinite love and understanding,
pour out your healing Spirit upon this couple
as they reflect upon the failure of their marriage
and make a new beginning.
 
Where there is hurt or bitterness,
grant healing of memories,
and the ability to put behind the things that are past.
 
Where feelings of despair or worthlessness flood in,
nurture the spirit of hope and confidence,
that by your grace, tomorrow can be better than yesterday.
 
Where each looks within and discovers faults
that have contributed to the destruction of the marriage,
and have hurt other people,
grant forgiveness for what is past,
and growth in all that makes for new life.
 
Bring healing to their children, and help us minister
your healing to them.
 
We pray for other family and friends,
for the healing of their hurts, and the acceptance of new realities.
 
All this we ask in the name of the One
who sets us free from the slavery to the past, and makes all things new,
Jesus Christ our Savior.
 
Amen.
